The Garmin Forerunner 310xt is a flashy triathlon watch that is available in the color orange. It is bright and says you are serious about tracking your progress and efforts. With a waterproof rating of up to 50 meters, it’s ideal for the pool or open lake swimming. It offers 20 hours of battery life and comes with a one-year limited warranty.
The swimming features allow triathletes to track and run data on distances and pace and its slim design means it doesn’t get in the way of your strokes.
The running features provide a wireless heart rate monitor with a quick release function for transitioning between sports. While we wish it was a wrist monitor, it does offer insight into performance prep with calorie computation so you can increase your calorie consumption to be ready for the race. It offers GPS enabled tracking in and out of the water for the most accurate time, distance and speed.
All of the extras that come in the box allow you to track your cycling efforts as well. You can determine speed, distance, and oxygen levels. When preparing for your triathlon, watch for watches that have cycling features that aren’t extra. Some need you to buy extra options to have these features activated.
